Single Stream Recycling

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

Single stream recycling is a system in which all recyclables, including newspaper, magazines, cardboard, plastic, aluminum and tin cans, and glass jars and bottles are co-mingled in a red, 95 gallon single stream recycling roll cart. Solid Waste is collected in a black, 95 gallon roll cart. The information below contains answers to questions residents may have about the system.  

*** Plastic bags are no longer accepted in single stream recycling.  Plastic bags will be accepted in the solid waste (black) roll cart, but some retailers offer a direct recycling service for customers who return plastic bags to their stores.
